Kelly Smith decided to sell the framing business and Terry Green at Billmeier Camera offered to buy it – but only if Kelly Smith came with it.
For Smith, the move to on the corner of Caroline and Leroy, will allow her to stay somewhat close to the artists in Fenton, which is one of her passions. Smith, an artist herself, and experienced in framing since 1979, has seen precision technology improve in the industry over the years.
“Today archival materials prevent yellowing and early aging. Mat boards used to bleed color and dry out. Now they go through a bleaching process, are acid free and have been treated with preservation chemicals to retard aging and stay fresh for a lifetime.” Smith said, “Today we use conservation glass, which keeps your precious art from fading.”
